    Thank you so much for the insight and practical suggestions on departmentalizing. I have been a first grade self-contained teacher for the past 7 years. This year will be my first exposure to departmentalizing and I am both excited and anxious about the changes. I don’t yet know who my partner-teacher will be so I haven’t done any planning with someone. I’m bookmarking your page for easy reference/access. Thanks again.

    This sounds amazing. Is this similar to team-teaching? If so, how many students did/do you have at a time? For example, are you sharing students? Or are you each staying to your own classrooms but teaching each others’ lessons?

      We each have a homeroom of about 20. I teach reading to my homeroom then switch and teach it to hers. The kids switch rooms and we stay in our homeroom.
